Or just use the Relative Strength() function.

Thanks for the details and specifics of what you are looking for. We don't have any additional comments at this time, but are looking into adding this data.

Please let us know if you have any additional suggestions or comments!

Thanks for the polite blow off. You ask for input and when it is not what you want to hear or are already planning to do, it gets ignored. The request for monthly data has been one that has been asked multiple times already - I should have known that this time would be no different.

Calendar-based monthly bars, including partial bars for the current month. Identical in all respects to the current weekly and daily bars.

Any further comment on this? This is already being done by a lot of your peers (stockcharts, stratasearch, finviz, etc.) and exclusion of this type of data puts you at a disadvantage when it comes time for folks to decide where their subscriptions dollars are best spent.

Well, while I have not really looked in depth at this, I would consider requiring the 3 month ROC to be positive for any asset class in which you would re-allocate funds. That way, if both stocks and bonds decline as the result of rising interest rates, you sit out of the market until at least one of them is again in the lead and has a positive ROC.

As I indicated earlier in this thread, this is exactly what I am doing now - all cash until there is a signal to return to equities. We all know that a rate hike is coming, most likely within the next month or two, so I'm fine waiting in cash until the dust settles.

Not at all what I see, using the simple 3 month lookback upon which this approach is currently based. Are you sorting based on 3 month performance?

Here is the filter - AGG is at least 7% higher than any equity asset class. The play for the last two months has been defensive.

sort on column 5 descending
set{ch,close - start}
set{sort,ch / start}
set{sort%,sort * 100}
add column sort%

Nope - I have heard of them but never really looked at them for any of my systems. Is this something you are evaluating?

In short, there needs to be access to monthly data bars as well as the daily and weekly bars that are currently used in filters and graphs. Again, I am focused on improvements to both the code and filter capabilities rather than on the user interface. My belief is that SF's uniqueness in this space is built on the code and filter syntax, and that has not really gone through any major renovation in many years.

I noticed that there is still no monthly data available to use in filter development. Please add to the list, perhaps ahead of purely cosmetic changes.

Hopefully that amount you lost was not a large percentage of your trading capital. For example, if you had started with 100K you are now down to 40K, and to regain the original amount would require earning a 150% return on capital - very hard to do within any reasonable time frame. Also, smaller amounts per trade are impacted by slippage and transaction costs, so you cannot really diversify all that much to mitigate risk. If this amount is more than that percentage, it will be very hard and time consuming to get back to where you were at the beginning.

I would suggest putting a hold on all trading while you figure out what you really want to do, then practice trade a few systems for six months or so to make sure that they mesh with your particular trading style and level of risk tolerance.

Don't expect to make your money back quickly - that mindset is what led you to lose it in the first place. You paid a very high tuition for this education - make sure you learn from this and do not let the same mistakes repeat themselves.
